Cinnamon Chia Cookies

Vegan and Gluten Free Cinnamon Chia Cookies RecipeThere are two types of cookie lovers in this world: the crunchy cookie person and the chewy cookie person. I happen to fall into the second category.

With this recipe I combined my loves of nutty cashews, earthy cinnamon, sticky chia seeds, and sweet dates to create some amazing—and very chewy—cookies. If you’re in the mood for some delicious, healthy(ish) cookies this recipe is for you!

Let’s bake some Cinnamon Chia Cookies!

Healthy, Vegan and Gluten Free Chia Cookies RecipeGluten free baking has been one of my favorite challenges over the years since I began eating gluten free. When gluten (in wheat flour) is removed from recipes, a key binder is also removed. This creates cardboard-textured and extra crumbly baked goods. I have found through much experiment that chia seeds make wonderful, natural, binders in gluten free baking.

The white chia seeds that I use in this recipe serve as a binder, but also add healthy fats, and allow for the recipe to remain vegan! Whip up these cookies for an easy week night treat or for a delicious addition for your next party.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a food processor or blender, blend raw cashews and oat flour until a smooth flour forms.
  3. Add dates, water, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Blend until very smooth, if you batter forms a ball, simply add more water (in Tbsp amounts) until it is thick and creamy--but not runny.
  4. Add chia seeds and give the batter a quick whiz to thoroghly incorporate.
  5. Using a Tbsp measurement, drop balls onto lightly greased baking sheet. Gently flatten with spoon. Cookies will not expand much so do not worry about them being too close.
  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookies are firm.
  7. Let cookies rest on cooling rack until ready to eat. Leftovers will keep in airtight container on counter for 3 days or in refrigerator for a week.
Notes
*I’m not counting water as an ingredient here
